Celebrate, That's the Ticket!

I am a big fan of the
Spring Mini and the Sale~A~Bration mini!!
Here is a Happy Birthday celebration for the
non-pink lady in your life (like me - lol)!
When I think of Ferris Wheels, Fun Cotton Candy Filled Days... I always think of the amount of Tickets I'd need to ride the rides!  This card is inspired by my childhood memories of hoarding tickets for my favorite rides!
I grew up in Santa Maria, California where every Spring, right around my birthday, the
Strawberry Festival would occur. 
The Large Ferris Wheel was
ALWAYS a favorite of mine as it took me to the clouds!
Feeling Sentimental (Sale~A~Bration Mini) is a stunning and FREE stamp set that brings me back to the sweet berry filled days of my youth.  Using our
Print Poetry Designer Series Paper (Spring Mini) on a Whisper White card stock base...
the Delicate Details Lace Tape in White (Spring Mini), the
Tea Lace Paper Doilies
(24 doilies for under $3! - WOW - Spring Mini) and the
Basic Jewels Pearls collection... this card comes to life!
Stamping the Ferris Wheel on the Doily ties the circle feel of the wheel, the Tea Lace Doily, and the Delicate Details Lace Tape continue the feel in subtle ways.
Before adding the Pearls it's a sweet card... the Tickets from That's the Ticket (Spring Mini stamp set) coordinate with our Ticket Duo Punch and make it easy and fun to ticket someone!  Admit one - it's a Happy Birthday!
The Pearls add a luxury to the card and feel
in-line with the vintage, femininity of the lace.
What are YOUR Memories of Festivals and Park Rides?
I hope that this encourages YOU to Celebrate!

What Others are SAYING about Getting Crafty with Jamie

Jamie is so passionate and creative about making cards - and wants everyone else to join her in the fun! She is so encouraging and positive in her attitude, helping me along when I get frustrated - and then rejoicing with me at the finished product! I love going to her classes to get new ideas, learn techniques, and have loads of fun in the process. ~ Christine C.

Jamie has wicked awesome classes! If you don’t like a particular stamp or paper/ink color Jamie wants you to change it to suit your style! I did my sister-in-law’s entire bridal shower from invitations/thank you cards, party favors to decorations, it was quaint and whimsical! Everyone ooh’d and ahh’d! I’ve had lots of special requests for classes and Jamie delivers; she always has tasty treats and flavored coffees too ~Ashley W.

I have been attending Jamie's classes for over a year. Her ideas for cards are fresh and fun. She always tries to have several different styles of cards available, so everyone gets to make cards that fit their personal style. The techniques she shows each class can be used in many different applications. She is very patient teacher when instructing class members on how to use the Stampin Up products. ~ Carol D.

If I looked up the word sparkle in the dictionary, I would find Jamie Albanese picture there. I have had the sweet blessing of knowing Jamie and her family for over 5 years now. Every time I am with her I feel loved and inspired. When I am in one of her classes I feel my creative juices flow, as she encourages me to go outside my comfort zone. Jamie helped our girl scout troop make cards for a soldier who needed some encouragement!!! For any of you who have not been in one of Jamie's classes, please don't let another day slip by. She is a beautiful friend and she will become yours too. ~ Blessings, Karen:-)

Jamie has a great eye for style and flair, and it shows in her work. Yet she can pick up on your own individual style and makes great recommendations. I love that she is always flexible for last-minute decision maker mommies like me! So much fun to host craft events with your friends and family - that personal touch always means so much. ~ Adonna
